Are You a Christain? Do You Support the Democratic Platform? Part 2
--- CLIMATE ---
What God says…
“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” (Gen.8:22)
What the Democrats say…
“Climate change is a global emergency…The last four years have seen record-breaking storms, devastating wildfires, and historic floods…And President Trump still callously and willfully denies the science that explains why so many are suffering.” (p.49)
--- Does blaming a president for natural disasters make ANY sense at all?!!!
That same science claims that man developed from monkeys. Yet, there will never emerge evidence of this transition…or evidence of continuing evolution…unless we are reverting back to monkeys…which is almost believable! Not really.---
--- VOTING ---
“We stand united against …voter ID laws… purges of the voter rolls.” (p.55)
“We will make voting easier and more accessible for all Americans by supporting automatic voter registration, same-day voter registration, early voting, and universal vote-from-home and vote-by-mail options… emergency funding for states to help make vote-from-home and vote-by-mail universally available… vote by mail voters must be informed of and provided a meaningful opportunity to fix any problem with their ballot.”
--- This is a literal nightmare of endless opportunities for fraud and election-result delays! ---
--- Under a democratic platform, biased urban and cultural centers can now appeal for Senatorial representation…because a lot of people who think the same thing and want similar government helps within their government-sufficient system live together on a large city lot? ---
“Making Washington, D.C. the 51st State.” (p.58)
--- Let all people in?
Should America indiscriminately welcome people who are corrupted and stand against everything America was founded upon? ---
“We will immediately terminate the Trump Administration’s discriminatory travel and immigration bans that disproportionately impact Muslim, Arab, and African people, and invite those whose visas have been denied under these xenophobic and un-American policies to re-apply to come to the United States….
We will reverse Trump Administration policies that prevent…LGBTQ+ people who are unsafe in their home countries, from being eligible to apply for asylum.”
“Democrats will end the Trump Administration’s shameful efforts to close doors to the world’s most vulnerable. We will reverse discriminatory bans and policies that deny protection to groups based on their religion, gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity. We will significantly raise the annual global refugee admissions target.” (p.84)
“We will prioritize alternatives to detention for individuals with special vulnerabilities—those who are known to be suffering from serious physical or mental illness…or an infirm person, identify as gay, lesbian, transgender, gender non-conforming, or intersex, or whose detention is otherwise not in the public interest.” (p.63)
--- Can you even imagine intentionally attracting and welcoming a population of people like this? ---
“Finally, Democrats will address the root causes of migration—violence and insecurity, poverty, pervasive corruption, lack of educational and economic opportunity, and the impacts of climate change.” (p.64)
--- ???no words??? ---
--- Why is it the government’s responsibility to provide what hard work used to reward? …and how can any mother easily surrender her baby to the government at age three?!!! ---
“As Democrats, we believe that education is…the government’s responsibility to ensure that every child, everywhere, is able to receive a world-class education…The emergency conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic have vividly demonstrated to parents, students, and educators across the country that there is no sustainable, long-term substitute for high-quality, in-classroom learning….
We will reimagine our education system guided by the stakeholders and qualified, first-class, well-trained, passionate educators who know these issues best:….
Democrats believe that all children across the United States should have access to high-quality early childhood education programs. We will work with states to offer pre-K for all three- and four-year-olds.
--- Did you see this?
“…there is no sustainable, long-term substitute for in-classroom learning…”
I beg to differ, my friends! Homeschooled students are turning out far better than the latest generation of government-indoctrinated and entitled irreligious young adults who, in the last six months, have raced through our streets indiscriminately inciting violence, disrespecting all forms of authority, and displaying such a plethora of ignorance and angry incompetence as could not hardly be imagined. ---
“Democrats believe we must prioritize STEAM education…We will equip students with the knowledge and skills to understand complex scientific issues, counter the rising tide of denialism by promoting environmental and climate literacy….
And we recognize the need for more stringent guardrails to ensure charter schools are good stewards of federal education funds. We support measures to increase accountability for charter schools, including by requiring all charter schools to meet the same standards of transparency as traditional public schools, including with regard to civil rights protections, racial equity, admissions practices, disciplinary procedures, and school finances…
And Democrats oppose private school vouchers and other policies that divert taxpayer-funded resources away from the public school system...
Democrats also believe that all schools should have adequate resources to expand school-based health services and hire guidance counselors, social workers, nurses, and school psychologists to help support students’ mental health needs, address trauma, and promote social and emotional development. …We will protect the rights of transgender students. (p.67)
--- ‘Denialism’…? That’s a new one! ---
--- What is ‘STEAM’?
“…embracing social inclusion, community participation, or sustainability agendas. Central to understanding the different educational opportunities offered by STEAM is the interrogation of the role—and status—of the arts in relation… The term “art” or “arts” may refer, for example, to the arts as realms/domains of knowledge, such as the humanities and social science disciplines, or to different ways of knowing and experiencing the world enabled by specific art forms, practices, or even pedagogies… which are shaped by and respond to a variety of policy directions and cultural traditions.”
Isn’t this called INDOCTRINATION? ---
“Democrats believe that English learners should be recognized as bringing an asset, rather than a deficit, with them to school…” (p.68)
--- The following is an oxymoronic paradigm…which, in typical democrat-like fashion, reacts to successful diplomacy in the hands of his opponent by resorting to slander while promising to accomplish the very thing already accomplished. ---
“Rather than defend democracy and human rights, [Trump has] fawned over autocrats, sent love letters to despots, sided with dictators over peaceful protestors…he’s made common cause with kleptocrats.” (p.72)
--- THIS is how describe themselves if THEY do it… ---
“Democrats believe that diplomacy should be our tool of first resort. The world’s greatest power deserves to have the world’s very best diplomatic corps. But today, American diplomacy is badly adrift and under resourced, and our diplomats are demoralized.” (p.73)
Democrats have thrown everything they have at demoralizing good leaders and, after ridding themselves of them, claim credit for the successes of their opponents. ---
“Democrats will not only reinvent existing alliances but also work to strengthen and build new partnerships in regions of growing strategic importance, particularly in Africa and Latin America.” (p.74)
“Democrats believe it’s past time, however, to rebalance our tools, engagement, and relationships in the Middle East away from military intervention—leading with pragmatic diplomacy to lay the groundwork for a more peaceful, stable, and free region.” (p.90)
--- That’s like telling a person to keep the speed limit while offering no counter-incentives or penalty for NOT abiding by terms of safe travel. ---
--- According to democrats, our military should reflect the diversity of the democratic platform’s reinvented standards of virtue. ---
“Democrats believe that our force is stronger when it reflects the richness and diversity of American society…
We will protect and enhance opportunities for anyone who can meet the standards to serve in combat roles…reverse the Trump Administration’s hateful transgender ban…and policies that stigmatize and discriminate against people living with HIV and AIDS, and ensure that LGBTQ+ service members and families enjoy equal respect, benefits, and care…
AND we believe anyone who has served honorably in our military has earned a path to citizenship prior to discharge or retirement…
AND we will never send military forces to suppress Americans exercising their constitutional rights.”
--- In layman’s terms: the military should be comprised of a conglomeration of sexually diverse individuals who, though born into one of only TWO sexually identifiable bodies with different centers of balance and strength...
(BTW, laugh away at this: https://www.wkyc.com/.../95-bf3547ce-5008-4f26-bb29...)
…ALL soldiers will be required to conform to a singularly physically demanding regimen of physical capabilities evaluated through rigorous PT testing regardless of either body type (female versus male) or age. Can one even imagine, in the middle of the horrors of Vietnam or WWII, an army of queers who require mental counselling and hormone therapies just to maintain their image of themselves and physical reinvention?
And, how can a non-citizen even be granted the privilege to defend our country?
Without the help of the National Guard suppressing the violent expression of white-supremists’ constitutional freedom of speech in 1957, how were our schools forcibly desegregated? ---
--- With Democratic policy, you will find that there is nothing patriotic about it. Their policies are consistently GLOBALLY bent. And, so far, the democrat-leaning social media giants have proven how ‘empowering algorithms’ function…not to mention that 5G was forced upon the world by those who stood to benefit financially from its deployment…regardless of health concerns. The ‘little man’ who actually used his brain and promoted legitimate sources of evidence over the last six months WAS deemed a ‘threat in cyberspace’. Look at what they say... ---
“We will recommit the United States to the principles of an open internet, including net neutrality…
Democrats believe that algorithms and platforms should empower people…
We expect technology companies and social media platforms to take responsibility and do more to preserve the openness of democratic societies and identify foreign disinformation…
And we will take steps to prevent the use of new technologies to facilitate repression, spread hate, or incite violence…
That’s why we will work with our allies and partners to develop secure 5G networks and address threats in cyberspace.” (p.80)
“Democrats’ approach to China will …draw on the sources of American strength—the openness of our society, the dynamism of our economy, and the power of our alliances to shape and enforce international norms that reflect our values. Undermining those strengths will not make us ‘tough on China’. It would be a gift to the Chinese Communist Party.” (p.88)
--- Here are 'our values', as redefined by the democrat party...
“WE WILL AMPLIFY THE VOICES OF LGBTQ+ PERSONS” ---
“Democrats will make gender equality a key foreign policy priority and work to achieve gender parity across our national security team.” (p.82)
“…regardless of who they are or who they love. We will restore the United States’ position of leadership on LGBTQ+ issues by passing the GLOBE Act and appointing senior leaders directly responsible for driving and coordinating LGBTQ+ issues at the State Department, USAID, and the National Security Council. We will ensure that our immigration policies account for the needs of LGBTQ+ refugees and asylum seekers, and that we use the full slate of human rights promotion and accountability tools to defend the universal rights of LGBTQ+ people. We will amplify the voices of LGBTQ+ persons around the world and counter violence and discrimination against LGBTQ+ persons wherever it appears." (p.83)
“Democrats believe that freedom of religion and the right to believe—or not to believe—are fundamental human rights. We will never use protection of that right as a cover for discrimination.” (p.84)
--- That was a clever wording. Here’s what that really said: We will never allow ‘freedom of religion’ as a cover for discrimination.
Literally, a Christian will not be permitted to recognize the difference between a male or female…between a person of virtue or a pervert…between an anti-American versus a patriot…nor could a Christian promote discernment of principles identifying true believers from imposters. ---
“We will reject the Trump Administration’s use of broad religious exemptions to allow businesses, medical providers, social service agencies, and others to discriminate. Democrats will increase funding and support for security investments and protection at houses of worship…
We will confront white nationalist terrorism and combat hate crimes.” (p.48)
My 12-year-old was the reason I even looked at the democratic party platform. He wanted to understand the disgraceful display observed in the Presidential and vice-presidential debates. I could not explain to him why grown men and women were interrupting each other, rolling their eyes, and leveling accusations rather than discussing policies.
I was not satisfied to simply tell him what I thought and what policies I stood behind. So, I pulled up video evidence of Ms. Harris’ interrogation of Kavanaugh.
My 12-year-old was horrified.
I pulled up a senatorial speech of Mr. Biden. I let him listen to Trump and to Pence talk about their policies.
Then I downloaded the 60+ page 2016 Republican Party platform which remained unchanged for the 2020 election. I downloaded the 90+ page 2020 Democratic Party Platform. And, rather than simply tell him what democrats wanted to change about our America, we perused it together.
And then I had to teach him how a young man should rule an angry spirit.
His final comment to me today…
“Isn’t this like the story of Absalom in the Bible?”
Yes, Son, I do believe you’ve got that right.
For those of you who are not familiar with it…
“In the course of time, Absalom provided himself with a chariot and horses and with fifty men to run ahead of him. He would get up early and stand by the side of the road leading to the city gate. Whenever anyone came with a complaint to be placed before the king for a decision, Absalom would call out to him, ‘What town are you from?’
He would answer, ‘Your servant is from one of the tribes of Israel.’
Then Absalom would say to him, ‘Look, your claims are valid and proper, but there is no representative of the king to hear you.’ And Absalom would add, ‘If only I were appointed judge in the land! Then everyone who has a complaint or case could come to me and I would see that they receive justice.’
Also, whenever anyone approached him to bow down before him, Absalom would reach out his hand, take hold of him and kiss him. Absalom behaved in this way toward all the Israelites who came to the king asking for justice, and SO HE STOLE THE HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE of Israel…
Then Absalom sent secret messengers throughout the tribes of Israel to say, ‘As soon as you hear the sound of the trumpets, then say, “Absalom is king…”
Two hundred men from Jerusalem had accompanied Absalom. They had been invited as guests and went quite innocently, knowing nothing about the matter... AND SO THE CONSPIRACY GAINED STRENGTH, AND ABSALOM’S FOLLOWING KEPT ON INCREASING…
A messenger came and told David, ‘The hearts of the people of Israel are with Absalom.’
Then David said to all his officials who were with him in Jerusalem, ‘Come! We must flee, or none of us will escape from Absalom. We must leave immediately, or he will move quickly to overtake us and bring ruin on us...’
…The king set out, with his entire household following him; but he left ten concubines to take care of the palace.
So the king set out, with all the people following him, and they halted at the edge of the city. All his men marched past him…
David continued up the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went; his head was covered and he was barefoot. All the people with him covered their heads too and were weeping as they went up…
…Absalom on the roof…slept with his father’s concubines in the sight of all Israel…”
(2 Sam. 15 and 16 NIV)
Here is an excellent Election Sermon.
